How to Crochet Circles in Spiral Rounds

Crocheting a circle is very similar to crocheting a hexagon. Unlike the hexagon, the increases for a crochet circle are offset each even round so that the final crochet piece has a more round appearance.

The crochet circle has many applications in all areas. For Amigurumi the circle is used as ears, eyes, faces, noses and is the base for the most important 3-dimensional shapes like spheres and tubes used as arms, bodys, heads and more.

The circle is also perfect to crochet easy and simple potholders and coasters. Crocheted with a bigger yarn and/or crochet hook you can crochet ponchos, hats, round blankets and more.

The depicted circle has been crocheted with the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn with a 2.5 mm crochet hook.
